Uzbek President Islam Karimov does not see the necessity to conduct an international investigation of the events in Andizhan
His statements were published on Thursday on the web site of the National Information Agency of Uzbekistan UzA. "Uzbekistan is an independent country. It has its own constitutional regime, a government, a parliament elected by people and a president. Why does some outsider have to come to our country to conduct an investigation?" Karimov stated. He said "at present, the law-enforcement bodies of the republic conduct an investigation of the tragic events in the town of Andizhan. An independent commission has been formed. It includes representatives of the lower and upper chambers of the parliament. Its goal is to analyze thoroughly and objectively the causes and the consequences of the tragedy." Karimov emphasized he did not understand why "the whole clamor" broke out even before the results of the investigation had been published. "UN and OSCE official representatives can certainly visit the places where the tragic events took place and talk to people. Nobody is going to stop them," he said. The Uzbek President stressed that the government of the republic had already organized a special tour of Andizhan for diplomats and journalists. They had plenty of opportunities to see the results of public disturbances with their own eyes. "I am surprised that some foreign media that provided coverage of the events in Andizhan had never mentioned this fact," he complained
